The Seeds of Friendship

Written by Michael Foreman
Illustrated by Michael Foreman
Published by Candlewick Press

How can Adam bring the green warmth of home to his new urban world? An inspiring fable from Michael Foreman about making friendship grow. Adam feels alone in the strange new city. He misses his old friends and the colors of his faraway home. It’s fun to build snow animals with children in his new neighborhood, but Adam’s concrete surroundings still make him wish for something more. So when a teacher gives him a few seeds, it plants an idea in him–an idea that could transform his gray world forever.
